260 Kindergarten Children Hospitalized In China, Food Poisoning Suspected

Lanzhou, China (AHN) – Over 250 kindergarten children were briefly hospitalized in China’s northwestern province of Gansu on Thursday in what authorities suspect is a case of food poisoning.
The 147 boys and 113 girls, between the ages of 4 and 6, are students of Shiyan Kindergarten in Wuwei City. They were taken to the city’s two hospitals starting on Wednesday for vomiting, fever and stomachaches.  Government officials said on Thursday that 244 have recovered and 16 are still suffering from a fever. The management of the kindergarten refused to comment on what happened. Tests are being done at the Wuwei Municipal Health Bureau to find the cause of the illnesses.
